After the long downtime, we're opening GunZ 2 in Europe again.
We apologize to all EU fans for such a long downtime. The licensing agreement with Prosieben had come to an end, and we opened Steam server for EU fans as of this week. We still need to finish up optimizing game servers to host players from EU regions, but we believe that the game service will be stabilized and improved with the new EU players soon.
First of all, I would like to apologize about delayed contents update and announcements. As you might already know, we have launched GunZ 2 in South East Asia last month. We’ve been focused on the project for the past few weeks, and we are now ready to push the next contents update on Steam for you all.
We have prepared 24 new items all equipped with brand new features that will bring a huge impact to the gameplay.
See below for details of the new gears.

Today’s patch might surprise many of you. We are releasing dedicated server solution today. Yet, this is still a test version and we will have to wait for full implementation. Dedicated server will be applied on US West region first for testing purpose. We will run a few rounds of testing then move on to other regions soon.

The game servers will be closed during the maintenance.
We’re sorry about the down-time and will do our best to reopen the game servers as soon as possible.
